NYC Gallery Openings: August 3 – 5


Gone are the days of oppressive heat and suffocating humidity. The rest of this week promises a cool respite from the summer heat prompting us to go for a nice long gallery stroll. So get out there and enjoy what the city has to offer!

Our picks for you this week:

Swing by the New Museum this Thursday afterwork for a talk with Lorraine O’Grady. The Q&A session titled, “Ask me Anything About Aging,” is to happen in support for Simone Leigh’s solo exhibition. “The Waiting Room.” The legendary new york based artist and critic will not only answer questions about aging itself, but will also explore “the benefits of intergenerational word-of-mouth information and strategy sharing among women.”  Bring a friend, this ought to be fun!

And not too far off from the New Museum, The Swiss Institute, or pardon me – now going by the Swiss In Situ, will be hosting a Zine Library event by Nieves and Innen. The two publication houses will bring in 15 years worth of pocket-sized & image-based artist books embracing the now burgeoning zine community. Artists themselves will be coming in to talk about their publishing practices.

As for galleries, a definite attention-grabber for this week will be at the Burning in Water Art featuring works by Jesse Krimes. The artist will be showcasing works he smuggled out of jail via his friends and family. He crafted each work out of contraband materials during his 6 years at a maximum-security prison for non-violent drug offense in 2009. If that isn’t cool, I don’t know what is.

Happy gallery-going!

Here’s how to use the Gallery Guide:

  • The map’s various colors represent different days of the week. For a key, click on the arrow icon next to the map title.
  • For example, to see galleries with openings on the weekend only, first click on the arrow icon. If you uncheck every box except Saturday and Sunday, you will only see the galleries with weekend receptions.
  • Click on a marker to find out more information! A side bar will appear showing the gallery and exhibition name, as well as other useful tidbits.
  • To prevent confusion for galleries in the same building, the marker takes a different shape for every overlapping venue.
